Thanks to Vitaly's crew who went to CES and captured these photos:

If that is the final spec, the 35-100mm f/2.8 would be my cup of tea!
These aren't power zoom lenses right? So I take it those are OIS on/off switches on the side? If that's the case, these bad boys will have working OIS with Olympus bodies! I got my eye on that 35-100!
They are Mega OIS switches!
Here's another photo of the lenses from above, courtesy of Photography Blog
I can't remember if these will be fixed length lenses?
What do you mean by fixed-length lenses? You mean a prime lens?
Will probably be out of my price range
Perhaps he meant lenses that dont extend when zooming. Like the Canon 24-70L/24-105L
Or I may be wrong
The 35-100 barrel looks like it will extend. I bet they are both internal focusing though.
I would love to trade my 40-150 for the 35-100, but I'll need to see prices.
But first I would get rid of my kit lens and my 20mm and buy the 12-35mm to replace both.
It's the " concept lens" sign that's the most telling. Arrrrrrrgh!
Thinking the same thing. "Um, Panny -- let's just remove that 'concept' tag, OK"
I might be interested in the 12-35. Have to think on the 35-100.
I see the rings on the front of the lenses have the newer Power OIS and the switches say MegaOIS. These aren't even production mock-ups yet.
That means how soon we can grab hold of it?
What is your guess on the pricing?
Alright, someone shoot me. That photo is like porn to me.
They wouldn't tease us with these and then dash our hopes, that would be just cruel. No sign of the Leica name on them, maybe they won't be priced sky high.
Finally. Don't know if I'd let my 20/1.7 go, but I'm interested in the 35-100. Now some poor soul has to buy my 45-200 first.
Dunno about that. The X zoom 14-42 is a bit high for a "kit" lens.
I would buy 12-35 if it's around usd1000.
For 35-100, I will give it a miss and get a used 45-175x or 45-200 in Singapore perhaps within this 1 or 2 weeks
I'd be interested in the 12-35 as long as the price isn't too insane.
